"Troll kalla mik
trungl sjǫtrungnis,
auðsug jǫtuns,
élsólar bǫl,
vilsinn vǫlu,
vǫrð nafjarðar,
hvélsveg himins –
hvat's troll nema þat?"

"They call me Troll;
Gnawer of the Moon,
Giant of the Gale Blasts,
Curse of the rain-hall,
Companion of the Sibyl,
Night-roaming hag,
Swallower of the loaf of Heaven,
What is a Troll but that?"
Bragie Boddason, Skáldskaparmál (circa A.D. 800).
